The Ballarat Cup Day meeting holds a stand-alone Saturday Metropolitan status at the end of the Victorian Spring Carnival.

Balfour said "She has come home through her gallant Group 1 Coolmore run in great order and she has been given her usual fresh routine between runs. Kontra has shown she could match it at the top level and myself and the owners couldn't be prouder of her. Jamie Kah is suspended so we didn’t hesitate to book Dwayne Dunn whom combined with Li'l kontra to win South Australia’s premier 2yo race the Group 3 National Stakes at Morphettville. Kontra will gallop Tuesday and all going to plan head over to Ballarat later in the week “
